7:04 am
temperature, later on this afternoon. sunset time 8316:78:97 day forecast is just ahead. hey, bob kelly? >> good morning, everybody, on a wednesday. if you had the showers roll through, so we got wet roads, accident here, this is 95. where is he going? ninety-five northbound, at academy road. so we had an accident. looks like we got two cars involved. maybe he was the driver of one of the vehicles. but nonetheless, north 95, watch for a slow down from cottman up to academy. jammed solid, on the jersey side, coming into philadelphia. the heavy rains, though pop up showers, headed in through jersey, there is also a disable school bus, on the 42 freeway, southbound, as soon as you come over the walt whitman bridge, kind of off to the shoulder there. trying to get a handle on whether there is any kids on the bus there or not. signal issues on a lot of septa's regional rail lines. up to 15 minute delays, out of the gate this morning. and the traffic lights are out at second and callowhill. so anyone that exits 95, at

7:06 am
lilly bernard back in white again. she had left town, but now she is back, and i'm busy taking a picture of why we do there is you got to love these still photographers. they need 3,000 pictures anyway. so now posing in solidarity, than is victoria valentineo who says cosby a assault the her, and then on the far right, and then we see the other. all right, so let he is get back to the story you want to do. we're wondering why not verdict? the most recent highly publicized case we covered, remember just a couple of weeks ago, creato, that jury got the case on a tuesday. did about 20 minute. then all day wednesday, all day thursday. that was before the long memorial day weekend. remember, no court on friday, so they had a long four day weekend, just to think about in their heads, they come back tuesday all day. they say the judge, we can't agree. so the judge says try again. so then, on wednesday, they meet again. so, more than a week, so you
7:07 am
got tuesday, wednesday, thursday, and then, another tuesday and wednesday, and they never reached averred. that was kind of long this case, by the way, shocking everybody, constantly compared to o.j. simpson. remember talking about that early on? >> yes. >> similarity is is that jury was also sequestered. do you even remember how long that jury was sequestered, guys? >> see, hole on. was it -- did it come up on close to six months? >> you're close. closer than the guy behind the camera. eight and a half month, 26 a days. here is the one i'm stomping everybody around here on. how long do you think it took for them to deliberate before they had their verdict? >> in the simpson? >> yes. >> it was less than a day. >> all right. do you want to get little closer than that? >> it was four hours. >> you are right. you're google stuff mike. >> no, i'm not. >> he's not. i'm witness. >> all right, what about casey anthony? you guys covered. that will quick guess?
7:08 am
>> casey anthony, that was real short too. >> was that a day as well. >> it was under an hour. >> all right, ten hours. >> like i said. >> another one. how about one we covered? jerry sandusky, i covered, that reported the verdict. do you remember that case? that wasn't a murder. all of the other ones are murders. >> under two hours. >> twenty hours. over two days. >> there was a two involved. >> okay? and then -- >> i don't like this quiz. >> the one closest to this in time george zimmerman tai von martin, 16 and a half hours, about where we are with this, so it varies, that's my whole point in talking about this, you can never guess. but we haven't gotten any of the note from the injury that i we got in the creato case. no note indicate that they're stumped and this their err ' at lagger heads. all of the notes look like they're working hard to get to the right answer. so, that's the good news here. so maybe averred today. but just to ask you a questions asked of lawyers, not a lawyer, because i thought interesting. a lot of people surprised only took four hours for the o.j. case considering all of the
7:09 am
testimony and all of the month sequestered. >> i would say out of the four trials that you just talk about, most people would say a lot of people would say that the jury out of three out of four of those got it wrong. >> think back. >> that's the other thing, you're right. >> casey anthony. >> will always be debate. >> oj. >> not mat what err they decide, people will say this is wrong no matter which way it goes. >> true. people feel strongly on both sides. >> here is somebody who feels strongly, christine flowers sittng right next to me, attorney and contributor of the says cosby is taking the hit for the men who have wronged women for years and years and years. >> so she wrote an opinion piece about it yesterday. here's one little highlight. we will bring some excerpts. bill cosby her words is a easy target, able to stand in for all of the men who might have mistreated news dis pant past, and the cautionary tail to those college frat boys who might have taken advantage when we lie and drunk on the floor in the your your. after conversation, evidence and prognostication, we are left with the words of one woman and one man, and yet it
7:10 am
is as if the tides al wave of femme his history set to end gulf the one man for some kind of vindication for all of the women done wrong. >> i can tell you are a person strong and willing to take some tough comments on line. >> what's the reaction been to that statement? >> oh, my goodness. well, i should have reconstructed the surgery and gone into the witness protection program in philadelphia. i understands the passion. >> what are you saying. >> what i'm saying, the idea of rape culture is real. how much, it shouldn't be the reason we over return only doubt. i'm an attorney, i'm also a woman, i understand the passions on both sides. but i also understand that there are situations where publicity can push us a situation beyond the normal bound, for example, the uva situation, rape that never occurred, the duke lacrosse situation, and we go further back in history with the
7:11 am
scotts borough boys, and emmett till. i understand bill cosby is not an analog for all of the situations but what i am ' trying to say is we can't simply ac we he is in the idea that if a woman or if 50 women have narrative about something a man did ten, 20, 30, 50 years ago, that we're in the allowed to question it, we're in the allowed to criticize it, and avoid and not be called, i don't know if i can say this on air. >> yes. >> but blank shaming, slut shaming, and i've been told that's what i am doingment and i'm not. i'm saying take a moment, step back, and ask yourselves, are we too, too willing to except the fact that bill cosby committed this crime?
7:12 am
so in a sense, would you say you're supporting billing cost. bill cosby or say we would like to question? >> the coverage seems one sided. >> exactly. that's exactly what i am ' saying. and listen, bill cosby has lost his reputation. the cliff huggable doesn't exist any longer. >> you said in the article one of your quotes here; bill cosby is cliff huxtables, regardless of what the critics say, we're all made up of perception, reality, aspiration, confirmation, ridiculous to argue that a man capable of creating the charge their fathered a generation did not at some deep level possession those nurturing characteristics. >> thank you. >> it sounds like you're saying though he is doctor cliff hecks tables. >> i'm saying there is in bill cosby. not saying that they're one and the same, you know, the janice, the old roman character of the one sides, the two phases, there is that in him. i don't think he was capable of projecting that type of a character on television, without it, the very least,
7:13 am
having some of that deep inside. i know a lot of people have challenged me on, that's creation,'s character. >> he is an actor. >> as i said, aspiration, and reality, are two parts of human experience. so, i really -- he is an actor. but i think we have to look at his experience from the very beginning at the richard allen project. >> you're know you're on dangerous grounds here? >> oh, when i wrote that column, i sent it to my editor, when i pressed sends i said i know what i am ' doing here. i've done this before. it has happened before when i wrote a column about harem bay, the gorilla, i got a lot of flack about that too. >> but that's your job to push the envelope, stuff like that. >> and you know people will say oh, my god it is why women don't come forwards when they get raped. >> blaming the victim or saying and that's probably why a lot don't have the strength to come forward and say something, people might doubt them or question them. >> then alex, and mike, what i'm saying is we have to
7:14 am
question, if we have a legal system based on fact and based on fairness, based on the constitution, we simply can't ac we he is, we don't want to hurt feelings or don't walt to make women feel bad. we can't ac we he is and say we believe you, we believe you 100% without putting through to the as i had test, and i'm a woman. i would want to be believed. but by the same token i would expect that my accuser, the person that i'm accusing, get all of the due process to which he is entitled. >> well, you're doing your job. you're, you know, like i said, push the envelope. you certainly have this time. >> and where can people reach you? >> flower lady 61. >> because your last name is flowers? >> that's right. >> on twitter? >> that's it. >> okay. >> thank you. >> you said 80%, what's the breakdown of the responses you received? >> 80% very, very negative, and you know what i would say, very interesting that the people who say that they support women's right have said some horendous, horrific things to me and about me and
7:15 am
wishing certain things happen to me. >> what's the verdicts going to be? >> i think it will be a hung injury. >> i okay. >> it is leaning that way now. >> thank you for coming in and sharing your opinion. >> thank you, we have to get with a to this other big story, massive fire in a highrise apartment building. so this is again a live look. just 12:15 in the afternoon there in london. we do have six people confirmed dead, 64 now, people, have been taken to the hospital. twenty of them in critical condition. at the can't finds some people. >> so thomas, you've been following. >> this what's the late that's you know in. >> local authorities now saying that a significant number of people are unaccounted for. that's a chilling word, significant. we also know structural engineer has been brought n they're actually pushing crews back because they fear that building could collapse at any time. six limes have been lost, many more still unaccounted for. sixty-four people in the hospital. twenty in critical condition. this started about ten and a half hours ago, 1:00 a.m., london time. it is a 24 story tower in

>> back to this breaking news, house majority whip steve scalise some in the hip, floater hit with a gunman with a rival who opened fire at baseball practice going on about an hour ago in alexandria, virginia. representative mo brooks talking he was there at the time of the shooting, and he says that he was down on the
8:32 am
grounds with what described talking about scalise as hip wounds. we also know too two law enforcement offs ers also hit. so we're still getting more information about how many people. there were several people involved with congress who were there at this baseball game getting ready for this practice for the baseball game happening tomorrow. >> but like you said, alex, somebody of steve scalise stature in congress, he's the majority whip, one of the lead, he would have extra security around here, and rand paul from tennessee, who is at the game, in the batting guage, right behind the back stop there, said if all of that security hadn't been there this could have been a massacre. used the words massacre because the guy apparently shoot her semiautomatic weapon, just shooting across the infield. >> mo brooks took over for jeff sessions who became the attorney general, in the game
8:33 am
near third bales. he described the shooter as a middle-aged white male, apparently the alexandria police department says that male is now in custody. >> apparently wearing running clothes and went up to a person who was there and asked are those republicans or democrats out there practicing. >> as we understand it was mostly republicans, republican side of the baseball game supposed to be happening tomorrow. >> and as take a live look, heavy police presence, as ambulances, this is also near ymca. i've been looking at some of the reports, also near dog park, in the morning, a lot of people take their dogs out walking popular coffee shoprite next to where the baseball field s so a lot of people in the area this morning. whether this was happening, it is an open baseball fields. >> i think used by ooh minor league team, decent facility, used to have this traditional softball game between the republicans and democrat, but moved to bigger venue now. okay, 8:33, we'll get back down there, first a quick look
8:34 am
at weather and traffic. >> taking a quick look at what's happening around town. have the umbrella nearby, because we do have some showers is that are around. and as we check our sneeze index, medium levels, today and tomorrow, of mostly grass, pollen, friday and saturday, it looks like levels will be on the low side. so yes, we either got sunshine or pouring rain, some thunder and lightning to boot. through the area looks like, most of the rain has moved over into new jersey. for the moment, it is mix of sun and clouds here if philadelphia, bus stop buddy has the umbrella and the flag for this flag day the temperature is 76 degrees, we're going to get into the lower 80s, much more comfortable, bob kelly, today than yesterday. >> also national strawberry short cake take. 8:34, we have grounds stop at boston's airport, because of weather. so expect delays. that's going to have domino effect here in philly throughout the day. here is a live look at the talcony palmyra bridge, got sailboat out there. waiting for opening around
8:35 am
85:00, a watch the clock getting ready to roll out of the house at the moment. rolling in on 422, collegeville, delays and again you can just kind of see the clouds, hit with scattered pop up showers all morning long, and signal issues early this morning, expect some residual delays on a lot of septa's reginald rail lines. mike anal he can back to you. >> back to alexandria virginia donald trump, president of the united state just weighed in here. the vp and i are aware of the shooting indent in virginia. and are monitoring developments closely, deeply sad ends by this tragedy, our thoughts and prayers are with anybody that's involved. >> but right now we are showing the ex alan tree a police tweet saying the suspect is in custody and not a threat. so we're waiting to r more updates. this is also from sean spicer press secretary, also talking about what trump was saying. trump and the vp there are aware of what's going on, monitoring development closely, saddened by the tragedy, thought and prayers with the members of congress and their staff. capitol police first responders, and all others affected.
8:36 am
>> now, the republicans are practicing, just down the road, democrats are practicing, too, they heard about. >> this they're about a mile away from the republicans practice, they stop, got on their knees and prayed for all of the victims of the shooting again the game between the democrats and lee public cans, traditional game supposed to happen tomorrow. that will will not happen now of course. let's get to doug luzader who is in d.c. normally is near our headquarters which is near the capitol. but look, exactly where he is. doug, what are you hearing? >> good morning, we are on the capitol grounds here, right now appears when you look around you can see the security folks, the capitol hill police officers, milling about. it does appear as though security is a little bit more intense, than usual. we've seen some of these guys walking around, little more heavily armed than we typically see. but there is really no typical day here. and i think it is interesting to note that the capitol grounds are not closed off. and you still see tourists around everywhere. and it generally doesn't take much for police to close these grounds for one reason or
8:37 am
another. if a dignitary is coming, or if there is a suspicious package, something like, that and the fact that they've chosen to keep everything open right now, that tells you they seem to think the threat is contained to this baseball game. excuse me there is baseball practice, in virginia. now, having said, that there is a report that alexandria schools there is happened in alexandria virginia that the county school district is on lockdown. no indication that there are any other suspects at large here. but, as you guys know, this is very very early on in the process, very serious situation. >> happened less than an hour ago, but i'm real surprised that the capitol builds something not in lockdown. aren't you? >> yes, i am too. i mean, you know, i can't tell you the number of times that we are here and capitol police will show up and just start shoeing tourists away, and you never really know exactly why it is happening. sometimes it is because, you know, maybe the house speak is her pulling in, something like that. but, a lot of times you just don't know the reason. so they're on hair trigger
8:38 am
around here. the fact they haven't closed it down would seem to tell you something about the nature of the threat. >> softball practice, really looks like a targeted attack against politicians. so again, i'm real surprise dollars maybe that will change there where you are in a matter every minutes. >> thank you for the update doug from capitol grounds. >> if you don't know the area, alexandria, can probably see it from the capitol building. >> sounds like rand paul is speaking right now on fox news channel. see if you can list never. >> twenty steps from him, but just the luck of happenstance, i happen took walking away and it was at the furthest point, so when the gunshots came and in rapid success, there was a big oklahoma tree right behind the batting cage, i thought the shots were coming from the third base side, but it took, you know, another ten or 20 shot, until i could -- i was still guessing they were coming from that side. didn't know what side of the tree to stand on. so inside the right field
8:39 am
fence, couple of staff verse race around the track, but 20-foot fence. i can't get to them. they can't get to me. >> but at some point you have got to decide whether to stay and if the gunman advances you, you have no chance, or do you have run. one of the staff ers quickly climbed at about two seconds, climbed the 20-foot fence, hopped down beside me, we're behind the tree. still gunshots are, you know, ringing out, representative scalise goes down. we can see him. we can't get to him. because really nobody could get to him until the gunman was brought down. there is probably five or ten congressmen, hunkering down in the first base dug-out. the gunman is in the third behind the third base dugout. >> where was mr. scalise security detail? >> usually in a black suv somewhere around the field. and so at this point the gunman reloading, probably 50, zero six shot. we can't really see him that well. but my gut feeling was i've got to decide to stay or run.
8:40 am
and at this point, i think he's advancing toward us, people are moving behind different buildings. most everybody's closer to the gunman than i am. i'm at a dis pant point. >> but the staff err, at this point, you know, the capitol police began returning fire, i do believe that without the capitol hill police, it would have been a massacre. we have no defense. >> jury -- rand paul, behind the back stop, of course he's from kentucky, i mentioned tennessee, kentucky. he's a doctor, a physician, says that he was not able to get to steve scalise, but he seemed to be okay, and speaking as they put him into the air ambulance. >> there are report now saying that he is in stable condition, scalise. >> he just said came back to it is could have been a massacre because apparently this gunman who is middle-aged white man, they say, had an automatic weapon. and was just shooting
8:41 am
indiscriminately. let's get back to this story in our area, nationally story as well. montgomery county norristown bill cosby coming in for day three of deliberations by the jury. >> so here this is morning, about to put on his coat as he get ready to head into the courtroom. >> that's his spokesman, always by his side. >> he's given a thumbs-up looks like the crowd. >> was it yesterday, there with him, the spokesperson when he walked? >> yes. >> couple of days ago his wife of 53 years camille by his side. >> that cents with a for what we didn't realize was the last day. >> yes, some of our legal expert thought, well it, would take one day for the decision by the jury. that didn't happen. day two, didn't happen. so this is day three. >> i believe steve is there. i think steve wants to say something. steve? >> reporter: yes, we were told by andrew wyatt that camille cosby would not be showing up here for the verdicts. so he will be alone as he await his fate from the jury if there is going to be one.
8:42 am
so don't expect to see camille here any more according to andrew wyeth. >> not guilty. not guilty. >> he's got supporters here yelling not guilty. and he looks like he cracked a smile hearing that. >> they're imagine the turn here, sometimes reporters will ask him a question as they come around, right here. here comes. here is the shot. will this be the day? the jersey deliberated 16 hours, they go into the the 17th hour in about 15 minute, they'll start deliberation again. >> morning, sir. >> no comment today. >> just a smile and a nod. remember, last night, when he was leaving the courtroom, he
8:43 am
came out and he did his fatale bert. he said hey, hey, hey. and people responded, supporters in the crowd, there responded to him. >> so they've asked several questions throughout this process, he's had to go into the courtroom, the attorneys, go back to the holding room. >> and that's where they're headed now, there, they're going to go to the hold willing room into the courtroom and deliberation apparently start again in 15 minute. right back.
